It has been snowing here all day long. All the shoveling Superboy did last night was in vain, he is really gonna earn his 10 bucks this week! I love the look of the beautiful flakes falling down, but it is overcast today and I am getting tired of winter. I need to be outside in the sun, soaking up the healing rays on my skin. Getting exercise and fresh air. I am so over snow and cold. I do not think we have had this much snow here in years. It is gonna be a long, messy spring.
I guess I spoke too soon about the potty learning thing. Today, 2 accidents and one was a number 2. I knew there would be setbacks though, so no big deal. I actually think it was the princess panty thing. Today she didn't have princess panties, we had talked about not getting her princesses wet, so maybe I should have remembered to mention that hearts didn't want to get wet either?
So this pregnancy is affecting me in weird ways. Firstly I am getting really and truly fat. I have literally put on 10 pounds of belly fat. What the heck? I am freaking out! Of course the couple of weeks I spent mostly in bed sick didn't help. And neither is the fact that the only way I am staving off the pukey feeling is by eating. Small amounts, but often. And I can not go to bed on an empty tummy. There have been many nights that I have been lying awake in bed at 11 or 12 and have had to have an ounce or 2 of cheese to calm my tummy. That could possibly be contributing to the fat. I am sad about the belly fat, I really would love to be one of those adorable, all belly, preggo moms that can wear bikinis and stuff. I guess since this is my sixth pregnancy that is not gonna happen. Especially if I keep eating cheese in bed.
The thing that is bugging me the most is that while I am scrolling through my friend's blogs (or any other site) I am getting nauseous. I guess the movement on the computer screen is giving me motion sickness. Sucks! Oh! know what almost sucks more? My vb lattes. I can't handle coffee anymore, killer headaches. Actually almost anything gives me a headache now, especially the teeth clenching at night. Those headaches can not be touched by tylenol, they pretty much make me useless for a day. ugh. Anyway, instead of my yummy vb lattes, I think I will have to switch to london fogs. Yummy too. (London Fogs or Vanilla tea misto is Earl grey tea with steamed milk and vanilla syrup. I can handle the little bit of caffeine in a tea, but not in a coffee or cola )
mmm, we are watching a movie and they have real mac and cheese. I want!
I have been cooking this week, a major thing lately. We have been eating rotisserie chickens from the grocery store a couple times a week, mixed in with pancakes, pasta and some take out. I have so not felt like cooking and keep leaving it til the last minute, and then we are forced to make do with whatever. Tonight I made steak fajitas, which were yummy but kept making me gag. Last night I came home after dropping off son #1 at tkd and I threw some potatoes and chicken parmesan in the oven. Yay me, I planned ahead! And my hubby was so happy because I haven't made chicken parmesan (my light version, I don't bread the chicken) in about 10 years. Oh and the night before I made my 'light' chicken fettuccine (made with milk, chicken stock and olive oil instead of butter and cream, oh and whole grain pasta!), it is so flippin' delish, but I forgot to make it cajun like I usually do. Didn't even miss it.
I really have to get down to business with the declutter tomorrow, my sis and her family arrive on Friday and they are gonna stay in the Boy's room. His room is about 1/3 of the way through the purge. In other words, a huge flippin' mess! I have been trying to get the family room re-decluttered while working on the nursery and my room at the same time. My room is done, just needs to be dusted and prettied and kept tidy. Girly keeps taking apart all my work in the nursery. Her and Monkey boy take all of their clothes out almost daily. She to make a mess and he to change clothes 10 times a day. I am determined to finish in there tomorrow and make it harder for her to mess it up. k, gotta game plan, hopefully I can execute.
